    I’ll be in downtown Chicago this weekend and looking to try out some of the smaller breweries/pubs. But I don’t want one with 10 different IPAs either – just good classic styles. Any recommendation?

    Depending on how close to downtown you want,

    Metropolitan ( for German styles.
    Band of Bohemia (, a Michelin-starred brewpub.
    Moody Tongue (, culinary inspired beers.
    Forbidden Root (, botanical inspired beers (Randy Mosher involvement).
    On Tour Brewing (, new place that sounds interesting that I haven’t been to yet.

    Thanks Peter. Band of Bohemia’s beers sound pretty neat.

    Know anything about Vice District? I’m liking their tap list.

    It’s been around for about 4, but I haven’t been there.

    From their web site it looks fairly standard.

    Contact Keith directly; he’s been to more of the random Chicago places than I have.
